. but others have made moderator jim lehrer the target of their criticism arguing he let the argue get out of control. tonight derek says he defies any of those folks to do it any better. >> yeah, anita, i know this because i've done it before it. several times. i tell you, in politics the debate moderator is a lot like the king of england. fancy title. not much real power. once i moderated a debate during which an uninvited candidate came on stage to take part. i looked in vain to the organizers to do something. when they shrugged, what was i going to do? i waved him on in. homeboy was a nut. i think he had a few beverages. back in the '90s, i hosted a radio discussion which included, by the way, yes, that was me, it included then mayor marion barry, and when he repeatedly ignored my instructions and my warnings and kept right on talking, i finally had the engineer to cuts microphone. that's what i had to do to corral one big city mayor in an environment i completely controlled. so imagine jim lehrer that in debate hall. he can't cut anybody's microphone and he's dealing with the presiden

is jim lehrer of pbs. the debate is structured into a series of 15 minute questions, many focusing on the economy. the economy gets the first half of the debate, with questions 1, two, and 3. then they move on to the topic of health care, which has major economic impact, the role of government in our society, and the final segment will be on the governing cells of the candidates. jim lehrer can assign the final questions. there was a coin toss to decide who would take the first question. president obama has won that and will take the first question. we would like to involve you in the process and talk about this important debate, what you will be looking for from candidates, whether or not you have already made your decision. most particularly, if you had a chance to ask a question on this domestic policy debate, what would you most want to know from these two men? let's introduce you to our first guest. from inside the debate are -- the senior political reporter for yahoo news, who has been on the campaign trail with governor romney. >let me start with a pc filed recently, is sens
with the latest. >> reporter: jim and doreen, thanks, good afternoon. when this debate starts tonight here at the university of denver, moderator jim lehrer will ban booing and hissing and clapping, so we, america, can concentrate on what these candidates have to say. more than 60 million americans could watch tonight's debate. >> i've made up my mind but i'd still like to see both of the candidates sweat a little bit. >> reporter: president obama looked relaxed this week. mitt romney, too. but he knows he has to change perceptions tonight. more voters now see romney negatively than see him positively. and that loses elections. >> only two presidential candidates in the last 20 years have had a net negative image at this point and one of them lost, george h.w. bush. >> reporter: romney got good news from three battlegrounds in florida. he's now behind by just one point. still way down in ohio. but in virginia, romney's down by just two. with a lot on the line in past debates, romney's done well. >> going up against mitt romney is not a fun thing. he's got the facts. he drills you, stays, t
last night. how big bird stole the spotlight. >>> good afternoon, everybody. i'm jim handly. >> i'm pat lawson muse. first up tonight, a beautiful landmark with an ugly problem. dozens of workers are down on the national mall today trying to solve an algae problem at the newly renovated reflecting pool. >> they're using all sorts of high-powered equipment to clean up the spot. it's proving to be a much bigger task than anyone imagined. >> it's slippery when you walk on it. but it sticks to the bottom of the shovel. >> reporter: the last thing the national park service wanted to do after the $34 million renovation to the reflecting pool. tack on another $100,000 service to the invoice. >> it's frustrating. we did not expect to have to do this so quickly. but this is a maintenance problem. >> reporter: after an ongoing battle with the severe algae problem, they took the advice of an aquatic geologist and drained the pool. >> probably another day or two before we get everything out. our company has five or six guys, and 100 of the free lance companies. >> we came here to see, and we are ve
jordan is in baltimore where health officials just released the new details. >> reporter: jim, this is typically used to treat back pain, but now several people have died, one in maryland and one in virginia. doctors here say they've been able to pinpoint a two-month time frame where this injection was distributed and they think they know where it came from. >> we were notified by centers for disease control -- >> reporter: the state department of mental health and hi hygiene say patients are at risk of having meningitis. a facility in massachusetts where the injections were mixed and shipped out. there, doctors believe a fungus contaminated the product. nine facilities received shipments of the questionable steroid injections. >> this case, there were human cases, and it was tracked back to the product. >> reporter: the meningitis outbreak has reached six states with five deaths, but doctors fear the number of those with meningitis may get higher. >> we believe that there are probably hundreds of patients who may have received an injection, and those cases are currently under

[applause] >> and now, the familles are on stage as the first of three presidential debates comes to a close. we have been falling the romney campaign. carl, an event like this ends, whoever you were for you believe it did just great. whether you were against, you think did just horribly. >> it will be hard to judge initially. like so many debates, the spot analysis that will happen in the spin room for the next three or four hours, wwat will be all over social media, is likely to evolve over the next few days as people begin to analyze in depth and take a look to the accuracy of the things that were set as well as the demeanor of the candidates. in just about every single answer, mitt romney looked at the prrsident and looked him in the eye and addressed the president directly.+ in most of his answers, president obama spoke to either jim lehrer or the audience. this was, in general, a g
a fresh coat of paint. jim lehrer of pbs is prepared to moderate. andrea mitchell joins us now from denver. you know, they have three debates coming up. we're hearing that tonight's is going to be the most important. why is that? >> reporter: well, it's the first. wendy, this is the first chance we have to see these men face to face. they've been trading charges back and forth as well as their surrogates through speeches, stump speeches and also the campaign advertisements. this is going to be the first time they challenge each other. this format is designed to let them do exactly that. you'll not have opening statements. there are two-minute closing statements from each of them. but they'll be able to question each other, all on domestic policy. but we're told mitt romney does want to try to bring benghazi into the mix. they think there's an opening there to weaken the president by what went wrong in libya by that fatal attack. >> the race has tightpened nationally a little bit. two of the three battleground states is a statistical tie at this point. yet romney is still considered an unde
for everything from the flu to terrorism. >> well, jim, in addition to doing all of that, the new building is going to be the new home for the city's morgue. from security doors using eye identification -- >> thank you, you have been identified. >> reporter: -- to water tanks for testing bullets, to walking into a morgue storage room, with a space for 200 refrigerated bodies, twice the old capacity. the new $210 million forensics headquarters, three years to construct, is a major improvement for crime and chemical analysis that has eluded the district for decades. >> the potential that this building gives to the district of columbia to increase, improve, and expand its ability to do forensic analysis, to solve crimes, is just enormous. >> reporter: it will take several more months for the building to be fully operational. but the city no longer will have to depend upon fbi facilities in quantico and elsewhere for detailed analysis. some residents in nearby homes were initially worried that the building might pose a potential hazard if chemicals escaped or there were fires. >> when you walk
is still well above the national average. wolf. >> jim acosta joining us, thanks very much. let's dig deeper right now with our chief political analyst gloria borger. gloria, this unemployment number, the new number, how important is it to each of these two candidates? >> well, first of all it's got to be a real boost for president obama as jessica was talking about earlier. if not reality, then also a real psychological boost to get below that 8% figure. very important to them. because what it does, wolf, is it plays into the poll numbers that we've already been seeing, which is that people believe that things are getting better. the numbers are still not where the president wants them to be. but if it plays into a sense of optimism in this country, that's very good for the president. but overall you're going to hear the same refrain from both campaigns. the president's going to say that he's added more than 5 million jobs, and mitt romney's going to say there's still 23 million unemployed. >> you've spent a lot of time covering mitt romney. you did that excellent documentary all of

for the first time since moving back to d.c. it is still sinking in, folks. good afternoon, i'm jim handly. >> i'm pat law son muse. it was an unusual scene for sure. the nats didn't score a single run but they still got to celebrate as they made franchise history. now more on what lies ahead for the team. >> reporter: hey, jim and pat. i'm sure we all know the numbers. the first time since 1933. 79 years that we have a first place baseball team here in washington. davy johnson has been saying since spring training, it is a three-step process. first, qualify for the playoffs. second, win the division. and then three, win the world series. to win the world series though, it will help the nationals if they have home-field advantage. right now they are tied with the cincinnati reds for the best record in baseball. with two games to go, the nationals, if they win both, will likely have that number one seed. if they have that top seed, they will begin the postseason on sunday against the winner of friday's wild card game. if they don't, and if it is the number two seed, they will start their postseas
